John Cage: Seven, for flute, clarinet, percussion, piano, violin, viola and violoncelloLabels: Ives Ensemble, John Cage
John Cage (1912-1992): Seven, for flute, clarinet, percussion, piano, violin, viola and violoncello (parts without score) (1988).
The duration of all time-brackets is the same, with one exception in each part. The numbers of sounds in a time-bracket is different: one in the parts for flute, clarinet and percussion, between one to three for the violin, viola and cello parts and between three to five (per staff) in the piano part.
The sounds for the percussion part are chosen by the performer. In the percussion part, the notation uses numbers, indicating which instrument to play.
